I applied for funding from my local council along with a start up grant to help me buy my essential testing equipment and pay to join a part p scheme. I also stated that I needed some essential hand tools and equipment to complete my job on a day to day basis.

Truth is that I already had alot of these items except my tester and part p registration. I was hoping for a cushion for lean times and to develop myself further with more courses i.e. C&G 2330 1&2.

Local council has informed me that they will not support me as I am not qualified!!:mad::eek:

I have passed a domestic installers course and have had 2391 training (hoping to sit exam later this year). I am operating as a domestic installer and work is just ticking over ok. Therefore I am a viable startup and feel that I am qualified for this. Apparently thier electricians say that my qualification means nothing!

Am I going mad or are they correct? If they are correct I have just put my mortgage at risk!!!!?!!!:confused::eek:

Help please as my enthusiasm is waning!:mad:

Still ranting!!!!

A little more info.

I am a 30 yr old with a young family and a misspent youth who should have trained as a spark after school but instead went to university for nothing.

I wish I could go back and do an apprenticeship but that wont even touch my bills or mortgage.

I know I am doing this the wrong way round and that it frustrates the true time served sparks out there but please its my only chance.
